What is currywurst?

Currywurst is exactly what it sounds like – a combination of Indian and German culinary delights that serves as a perfect snack.


Obtained from vendors on the streets of Berlin, currywurst is simply sliced sausage with a curry (“kari“) sauce and powder, served with a pick to heave the hot morsels into your mouth. Although it’s usually made with pork sausage, halal beef, chicken and vegetarian options are available – I got mine from a food trailer just north of Checkpoint Charlie.

It’s totally not authentic – German sausage enthusiasts would probably cringe, and no Indian would recognise the sauce as anything desi – but it’s cheap, tasty and just like Berlin, it rocks!

    Tim, I am very familiar with currywurst and guess what 😛 … I had it yesterday for my lunch. I found it in one of Chinese supermarkets on a shelf with a bunch of other international food. It was a packed currywurst but it tasted delicious when I fried it :).
